People with ADHD manifest a persistent pattern of lack of attention and/or hyperactive impulsiveness, sudden, careless and abrupt acts that occur without thinking and may interfere with function or development. Under these circumstances, along with other problems that may arise in cognitive abilities, may also affect academics, social behaviors, and emotional factors.
